What is a Post-Nuptial Agreement?

A Post-Nuptial Agreement is a written agreement entered into between spouses, after they have already married. Its purpose is to establish the parties rights and responsibilities in relation to certain assets or debts. Spouses may decide to enter into an agreement to avoid potential stress and confusion should problems arise in the marraige in the future. Like a Pre-Nuptial Agreement, a post-nuptial agreement can address issues such as property and debt – but anything relating to children or childcare is not binding upon the Court.
